Description

With Nissa Pierson, Cooking Instructor & Food Writer

Summertime screams mango. As the Mexican mango season blossoms in the peak of summer, we begin to crave more and more of this sweet perfumed fruit. Despite the mango being the most widely consumed fruit in the world, it is still one of the most intimidating fruits in our kitchens.

This hands on class takes the pressure off; teaching the basics and beyond, of all things mango. From selection to storage advice, to the best cutting techniques for your skill level (including kids), it’s all here. The class will cover a gamut of simple yet tantalizing recipes, yielding several more ideas and kitchen tips to use all summer long.

There will be plenty of mango nutritional wisdom offered and juicy tidbits of grower and agricultural knowledge. You will walk away with the sweetest ideas for your summer mango mania as well as a case of organic mangoes in hand, thanks to Earl’s Organic Produce and Crespo Organic Mangoes!
